For a plugin, I need to put a text file on the hard drive.

A script node on the Workspace side writes to the file,

and a plugin on the Model side reads from the file.

For XP, it's not an issue; I can drop the file anywhere.

But I don't know about Vista. Are there access restrictions on directories

which prevent us from being able to put a text file in any directory?

As long as its not in program files it should be ok

but I turned off UAC off a long time ago

Program files can be an issue, even root of C: I think can be an issue too. Other than that, though, you should be fine. I still have UAC turned on, with both my Vista machines.

Ok thanks guys.

This is just a text file that is used as an 'interface' between workspace and model, so to speak.

I could get fancy and just send a message directly to the plugin on the model side but, maybe next time. :)

Can Vista users create any directory if they want, if necessary?

Like, say, C:\LWfromWS ?

that stands for:
